Woods' angry energy is clarifying as well as terrifying, and when he unleashes it (usually without warning), the effect is to focus our attention where it belongs, not on a suspense story but on the mysteries of human behavior.

Woods, as ever, is wired for a fight -- in or outside the courtroom. It's all Downey Jr can do to hold him back.

Woods clearly relishes his chance to display a wide range of emotions within his patented maverick persona, and Downey also acquits himself well in a much less challenging role.

One of the best courtroom dramas ever made, and a movie that almost nobody knows about. A terrific picture.

When I see Woods on the screen in the first shot of a movie I sort of smile to myself because I know that something strange and offbeat and maybe even inspired is about to happen.

Ruben relies too heavily on Woods' whirring turbines to power his scenes.

What counts in Believer is not what happens but how. This is as good a how as any.

Wesley Strick gave them a good script and they made a good, solid crime mystery.
